The first card (above) is Jayne Singleton's swap made with the Summer Silhouettes stamp set. Love this set! Each layer of color was sponged on, the flower and leaves stamped in black, then the mask was removed to reveal sharp, even lines. Sorry but I don't remember what set was used for the sentiment.
The last card for today was Sally Nusbaum's swap using the Road to Happiness set. I didn't do a very good job on my background scene. Sally's sample was darker and her hill looked like a hill rather than a blob like mine does. Sally also had a surf board in the car. My thought was to put something else in the car - maybe presents or maybe nothing. I definitely didn't do her card justice! Even seasoned stampers make mistakes. That's when you get creative to "hide" your mistakes and sometimes end up with an even better card. I'll have to put on my thinking cap!
Must run for now. I have a few things to accomplish before leaving for Carla Spradling's Card Buffet tonight. Thanks so much for visiting today! Your visits are always appreciated!
